Dale Ann Hawkins graduated from West Virginia University with an M.A. in Education. After teaching kindergarten for many years, Dale followed her lifelong dream of writing a children's book. Taking a prized beach find into her classroom for Writer's Workshop, the story of My Best Find...Ever developed. "One of my passions has always been teaching young children to read and write. This interactive book will enhance their joy of reading," states Dale. Residing in Charleston SC just minutes from the beach Dale continues to look for that elusive treasure.
